There was a query about Free Software/Open Source groups around
Mumbai. Here's a list available at http://wikiwikiweb.de/LugsList And,
while you're reading it (*hint*) please note that it does need
updating by volunteers. That's how the Free Software spirit works (all
help will be credited, of course):

Frederick Noronha's fred at bytesforall.org

GNU/Linux user groups… from India and Asia

A list of the useful user groups that help in spreading Free/Libre
and Open Source Software. Would really appreciate any help in
updating and correcting this list and keeping it current. Let's try
to network all the 'little' GNU/LUGs, who badly need your
support to grow.  FN  (Frederick Noronha in Goa)
